Not right now, sorry.  Between my mothers death, and my cat having 
congestive heart failure + kidney failure (he's going to live), I'm now 
600 odd emails behind. =(  I was hoping to get started soon, but I don't 
know if that will reasonably happen.

My plan had been to take mailx and throw a curses interface on it first.  
Then maybe rewrite in C++ for a good test. =)

Gtk has a nice visual layout package which helps alot.  You still need to 
code a bit of X crap, but not nearly as much.

Bahahahahahahahahahah..  That was a good joke, Alain. 8)

No matter how big the bell, if you only tap it, it can give out only a
faint sound.  We must understand thoroughly that the weakness of the blow,
not a fault of the bell makes the sound poor.
